HBO — to Side Note re: Name Change

Side Note: “Okey dokey, I’ll be the first. I am thinking of changing my name hear at Huckleberries. I plan to remain anonymous, though I’m not too sure how anonymous I have remained. If anyone out there would care to offer input I’d appreciate it, I am considering the following but any suggestions will be considered: Sidewinder, Sideswipe, Westside, Sidetalk, Apple Sider, Side Ache, Side view, Side, Sid, Sidey, Cosmo, Taurus, Scruffy, Gandhi, Kramer, Square Knot, South Paw, Lefty, Clicker, Einstein, Forrest, Dan, Griz, Bob (oops that’s taken), Oroville, Cougster, Huckster, Dogster, Biff, Caboose, Big M, Mole rat, Moldman, Crockpot, Side Not.

DFO: The pseudonym Side Note is one of my favorites here. However, I understand the need to freshen things up a bit. Bob, of course, has been taken. Ditto: Westside, Sid and we have a Big Mac. Cosmo and Kramer are too Seinfeldian (and there’s nothing wrong with that). I’d guess from some of the other suggestions that you’re lefthanded and the last child of your family? And that you either drive a Ford Taurus or were born under that sign? I’d love to know the meaning behind Moldman and Crockpot. But enuf of my reading into things. My favorites: Apple Sider and Side Ache. (BTW, some of you with unimaginative pseudonyms should consider an upgrade.)
